The Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company, a subsidiary of the National Iranian Gas Company, has extended the Iran Gas Trunkline (IGAT) by at least 1,000 kilometers in the last 11 months of the current fiscal year (March 2022-February 2023) – an unprecedented feat in the history of the company, managing director of the state-run firm said.
“NIGC has over 37,000 km of high-pressure gas pipelines, 315 turbo-compressors, 90 boosting pressure stations and major installations in the key gas sector,” Reza Noshadi was also quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry’s news service.
Giving a breakdown on operations completed in 2022, he noted that the pipe-laying projects included Zahedan-Zabol in Sistan-Baluchestan Province, Zarand-Larestan in Kerman Province, Torbat-e Heidariyeh-Mirjaveh in Khorasan Razavi and Sistan-Baluchestan Province, Qom-Parchin in Tehran Province and Iranshahr-Chabahar in Sistan-Baluchestan Province.
